15 September // Battle of Britain Day
Sunday, 15th September 1940. The climax of the Battle of Britain came when the Luftwaffe launched its largest and most concentrated attack against London in the hopes of drawing the Royal Air Force into a battle of annihilation. Around 1500 aircraft were involved in the air battles, which lasted until dusk.
R.A.F. Fighter Command defeated the German raiders.

Amy once asked me how many miles would I have to go before I could be okay with myself. I thought I’d have to go ‘round the whole world. I don’t think that anymore.
I’m okay here.
